[collectd] FQDN on CentOS/RH boxes.

this could be due to the file /etc/hosts:

    On debian/Ubuntu the format is as follow:       localhost       fqdn <Short Name>

On Redhat/Centos the format could be very different but it should be:               localhost.localdomain   localhost
    XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX         shortname    fqdn

So make sure the fqdn is first and problem is gone :D
